The problem is whether there will be security fixes for it. CVE-2019-9636 was 
published this year 65 days after January 1. If the community won't be 
supporting the release with fixes, you'll have to go find those fixes 
elsewhere and the quality of those can be in question.

Please remember to charge your customer appropriately for requiring extra 
effort to deal with deprecated software.
